Re: Der an gweder-mires gans Lewis Carroll

I've just discovered that you can get this as a paperback on Amazon. It's been published with Ray Edwards wonderful translation of Alice in Wonderland, so you get two books for the price of one. It's nice to see Ray's book properly published because my old copy is falling to pieces and as far as I c...

Der an gweder-mires gans Lewis Carroll

You can get this for the Kindle from Amazon. It's Alice through the Looking Glass in Cornish. Just search for 'der an gweder mires'. I got it a week ago and once I got into it I couldn't put it down. THe Cornish is just like the Cornish you learn in class (and I'm not talking about spelling!!). It's...

Re: One Small Victory for Cornish?

Why not sign up for the MAGA newsletter, factotum? It's free, and then you could keep yourself informed and stay bang up to date instead of stumbling across stuff the rest of us have known about for months if not years.

Re: Proof EDL are dimwits

Well yes but very few Cornishmen can speak theirs let alone spell it. What does that prove? Classes are on the MAGA website for anyone that's not a dimwit.

Re: MAGA conference

Now I've made a dish o' tay and had a think about it, the other good news from Eliazabeth was that they are also working on Kan for Kernow to enter a song for the Pan Celtic song competition and Radio Cornwall is going to prmote the competition by playing the songs on the radio. And the pack MAGA pu...

Re: MAGA conference

In answer to Kevrenor, the MAGA conference was great and really interesting. Jenefer Lowe introduced it and talked about putting a new management team in place based on choosing people that have useful skills rather than having reps from the language groups. It's on the front page of the MAGA newsle...

Re: What's The Language Revival Really Like?

Today's language weekends are much better than they used to be and I wouldn't want to go back to the way they were. I gave up going after one awful sleepless weekend literally freezing in a caravan and having to wear two coats gloves scarf and hat for the day sessions. It's not possible to learn any...

Re: What's The Language Revival Really Like?

Your point, grouch, is ridiculous. Nobody but you thinks that a small charge for a weekend event is an insult. You're just plain wrong about there being no costs associated with the event and the first post which you probably didn't bother to read tells you what some of them are. What's more I am su...

Re: What's The Language Revival Really Like?

You are right Keeley, factotum is a real grouch. There are obviously costs associated with an event as big as this. What are the organisers supposed to do? Foot the bill themselves? I know a number of people on the Kowethas committee and they put hours of unpaid work into this and the other things t...

<t>This is all wrong, saying that Ken George and what you call his entourage were rude at Lostwithiel. Ken George wasn't downright rude at Lostwithiel. Nicholas Williams sat at the front so everyone could see him and because of that they could also see him whispering all the time to Michael Everson ...
